Are you a teacher of German, Italian, Japanese, Arabic, Chinese, English / ESL or any other world language? If so, this version of my Spot-the-Match game is for you!
Based on the game Spot-it, this 31-card game is a fun way to have your students practice their house vocabulary! This game can be played in any World Language classroom since the cards are all pictures. I have included a blank vocabulary reference sheet that you can personalize for your specific language and vocabulary needs.
Just print out the cards double-sided, cut and laminate them (or print them on heavier stock paper and skip the laminating), and you are ready to play! This game is a HUGE hit in my classroom and it a great way for student to improve vocabulary recognition, speed, and accuracy!
This game can be played in groups of 2 to 6 students. There are two ways you can play this game (which are written on one of the extra game cards):
Version 1: Each player starts with 1 card. The remaining cards are in a draw pile in the center. A player flips over the top card from the draw pile. The first player to correctly find the match between his/her card and the flipped card and to yell it out in Spanish, takes the card and places it on top of his/her pile. For the next round, they will use their new card.
Version 2: Players start with no cards and one large pile in the center. Two cards are flipped over from the pile. The first person to pick out the match and say it in Spanish gets both cards. Two new cards are flipped over. Once all the cards are gone, the winner is the player with the most cards.

The file also includes a page of assembly instructions and two vocabulary reference sheets, one in English and a blank one customizable for any language.
